Event Details 
The Love, Lure, and Lore of the Clothesline
Session One will discuss clothesline nostalgia, helping to revive memories of the days when folks routinely went “online” without the Internet. There will be washday history, sociological issues of ethnic stereotypes in the laundry industry, as well as the role of feminism, industrialization, culture, and ecology. Anne will share laundry poetry, personal stories, and the opportunity to consider the clothesline in ways never before appreciated. Session Two seeks to answer what it is about hanging laundry out to dry that sets minds free to create in wonderful ways, and deals with how the simple act of line-drying has found its way into various forms of art and photography. Anne Lawrence has been a clothesline historian and hobbyist for over 30 years.
